Temple Back Bristol

Temple Back Fire Station

Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Rainscreen Board has been installed on Temple Back Fire Station in Bristol.

The Project

Faced with shrinking budgets, the Avon Fire & Rescue Service started to look for savings within its property portfolio, identifying Temple Back Fire Station as a target for improvement.

The size and poorly insulated design of the existing building, which also houses the Service’s headquarters, makes it uneconomically expensive to maintain and run having been built back in 1973.

To address this, the building is being demolished in stages, with a new three storey replacement fire station being erected at the rear of the plot on a much smaller footprint, whilst the remaining space is to be sold or let.

Willmott Dixon are overseeing the design and construction of the station, alongside AHR and AECOM consultants.

To keep running costs low, the energy performance of the building envelope was a key consideration. A target U-value of 0.23 W/m2.K was set for the external walls of the building, and to help achieve this, without reducing useable internal space, Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Rainscreen Board was specified.

This has allowed the Service to not only save lives, but also energy and money.
